Microsoft Shunning Internet Explorer for Mac

...

I was browsing around in a simple java web browser today and tried MSN’s website. This browser doesn’t understand styles, so it’s not surprising that @import lines showed up at the top of the page.

Just below that is the following text:

Why does MSN look like this? Your browser cannot find our style and presentation information and as a result may not display the page properly. You are welcome to use the page as is, or upgrade your browser to its latest version which may address the problem. If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer, go to the Microsoft Internet Explorer website to install the latest version. If you are using another browser, see the provider’s website for more information. If you are using Internet Explorer for Mac, we recommend that you use another browser to have an optimal experience on MSN.

What is Microsoft doing with Internet Explorer? First we find that Microsoft is hacking it’s own browser’s (improper) handling of CSS2 with the new Windows Vista website and now Microsoft disavowing IE Mac? Wow. I knew Microsoft wasn’t devoting much attention to IE Mac these days, but that’s just the icing on the cake!
